Careers in sound design

Become a production mixer. Become a sound editor. Become a boom operator. SCAD sound design graduates have won Emmy and Golden Reel awards and worked on Oscar-winning films — in part, because these alumni studied with preeminent faculty members who have authored books on the subject and collaborated on films including “Reservoir Dogs,” “Die Hard,” “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” and “Ocean's Eleven,” and TV shows such as “Two and a Half Men” and “Futurama.”

Launch your career as a professional:

And get recruited and hired by the best of the best:

  • Turner Broadcasting
